three recent meals, in order to document 6 weeks (so far) of an anti-inflammatory/anti-candida diet: no gluten/grains, sugar, fruit (mostly), dairy, yeast/fermented products. I have lost 8 lbs, and feel so clear-headed, awake, and steady. I am rarely hungry between meals now, and eat some activated nuts or cashew butter for a snack when I need it. I hope to continue eating this for a while, and will slowly add in some things eventually to see how I feel afterwards.
top: salad with crock pot baked chicken and homemade dressing made without vinegar, substituting lemon juice. also garlic, dill, olive oil, salt, pepper.
middle: eggs with a little pork sausage, avocado, and turmeric-roasted cauliflower
bottom: wild-caught salmon with turmeric and basil, grilled zucchini and broccoli with coconut oil.
We spent a day traveling through the Keweenaw Peninsula a few weeks ago and to my delight it snowed for two days. Any water you see is Lake Superior from the town of Copper Harbor. The only downside to this trip was that most places were not open for the season yet. We were able to eat some delicious whitefish, trout, locally brewed beer, and thimbleberry jam.
I have to say it would be great to return here someday and just spend some time staring into the water.
